New drapes and gold in the entryway...

Well after a year of being in our new home I finally found some drapery panels for our eat-in kitchen area.  They are from Pottery Barn....I love their panels because they are so well made and have a custom look.

The toile fabric on the chairs compliments the gray blue pattern of these panels.
 Now it's time to create a Holiday tablescape but in the meantime I'll show you a few other things.

Now don't panic.  That really is GOLD in my entryway!!! Yikes!!!
GOLD, not white.....somebody help me!!!  Why oh why am I suddenly liking gilded gold???
 Mirrors were found in thrift stores and the frame is from Hobby Lobby.

I found these metal angel wings and decided to add some lacy rag garland and a vintage rhinestone brooch.  I'll be taking this to my booth. 

That's it for now.  I'm off to visit your blogs to see what you've been creating.

I'm getting into gold too! It started with my Holly wood regency bedroom. My friend the decorator said we can blame it on Downton Abby? your drapes are perfect and what a match with the chairs

Love your new drapes, Sissie. But then again I have the same ones in our master bedroom! : ) I still love them after three years. They go really well with the Duck Egg chalk paint on used on some of the furniture in that room.

You know I'm a gold girl. I love the white, but my frames and mirrors are all gold. I like the mix and those wings are amazing!
Happy Thanksgiving.

Sissie, The drapes are beautiful in your dining room. These are my favorite window treatments at Pottery Barn and I wish I had somewhere to use them.

I love the gold! I have been drawn to gilded golds too. It looks great. Love your wings too and all the white tattered pretties on them.
